"The static nature of traditional ADC architectures hasn't evolved to meet today's complex IT environments, including the rapidly expanding number of applications and the way end users consume and use these applications today," said Jeff Pancottine, Senior Vice President and General Manager of ADC/Stingray team at Riverbed.

What's New in Stingray Traffic Manager and Stingray Services Controller:
Riverbed Stingray and the Riverbed Application Performance Platform™
Riverbed Stingray is a family of application delivery products that provide visibility into and control of traffic to and from applications, enabling fast, reliable and secure application delivery to users anywhere from the cloud or data center. It is a complete software-based Layer 7 application delivery controller (ADC) with integrated web content optimization (WCO) and application firewall that enables companies to deliver optimized and secure application delivery services where and when they are needed in an elastic manner. Riverbed's unique approach automates the deployment, licensing and metering of application delivery services, making possible an "ADC per application" delivery model in which costs for ADC-as-a-Service can be allocated to each client application. This unique approach reduces costs and time to production while enabling rapid change and scale for datacenter applications. Riverbed Stingray products are available in a range of editions and form factors to meet the needs of all customers.
Riverbed Stingray is part of the Riverbed Application Performance Platform™, the most complete platform to enable organizations to embrace location-independent computing, so that business objectives - not technical constraints - drive how applications and data are delivered.
